Batman V Superman, Bruce Wayne and Lex Luthor Brawl


Bruce Wayne and Lex Luthor get into a brawl in the upcoming Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice. Yet again the local news broke this story by having another extra spill all he knows, then they went live at 5 with it.

Speaking with News 10 WILX, courtesy of reporter Kirk Montgomery, an unknown source revealed that a party scene at Lex Luthor's house will ultimately lead to Luthor's fight with Bruce Wayne. The insider reportedly insisted not to be recognised for fear of a $500 million lawsuit against leaking production details.

The scene will reportedly involve a party for the re-opening of Metropolis Central Library, which has been funded by LexCorp. There will be a red carpet entrance of the rich and famous, which would include Bruce Wayne. The video below seems to reveal the iconic red carpet montage as well. According to the site, the guests would be asked about their views on the recent public appearance of Superman. As for the paparazzi, The Planet's very own reporters Lois Lane and Clark Kent will be on the red carpet questioning Lex Luthor and Bruce Wayne. However, it's still uncertain what caused the fight between the two.



The Town That Dreaded Sundown (Review)


the town that dread sundown poster review

The Town That Dreaded Sundown is by far the best horror film I have seen all year. Finally someone got it right and gave us a story that not only has great kills, but an actual plot with substance.

The film's opening with throw you for a curve. It opens with a narration about the real life phantom killer mixed with scenes from the 1976 film of the same name. From there we get our introduction to the main cast as the camera does a beautiful crane shot from behind a screen showing 'Town 76'.  Not five minutes after that we get our first kill of the film and meet our main girl Jami, played by Addison Timlin.

The cast for this semi-sequel is, in a word, perfect. You have Veronica Cartwright (The Birds,Alien) as the grandmother, Gary Cole (The Brady Bunch Movie, Office Space), Anthony Anderson (Scary Movie and Scream 4), Edward Hermann (The Lost Boys, Voice of the History Channel) and topped of with Ed Lauter (Shameless, The Artist). Each one brings their years of experience to the screen and play their given role with outstanding believability.

What really seals the deal on this film is the intercutting of the original film scenes to show the parallels of the film to the new copycat killer. The film really owes most of its greatness to Director Alfonso Gomez-Rejon and his Director of Photography Michael Goi. These two together have created some beautiful and iconic perfect shots. The use of the split diopter is, again, perfect.

The kills and effects are a thing of Beauty, almost everything seen happens in camera the practical way. I think I caught one scene with a digital touch and in my book that is a win for the practical FX community.

The story here is solid and the plot movies at a steady pace, no drawn out or unnecessary scenes to be found here. If you are a fan of horror this is one that will draw you in and have you guessing till the last reel.

Final Word: The Town That Dreaded Sundown is not a remake, but a perfect companion piece to the 1976 film. It has a solid plot, great FX and shots that make the film look as though it had a unlimited budget. Don't wait to see this, watch it now as it is a perfect film for this, the perfect month of October.

Rating: 10/10 stars   The best slasher film of 2014

Black Sails Season 2 Trailer

black sails season 2

Black Sails Season 2 trailer adds new pirates to the mix and gives viewers a glimpse of what  to expect in the upcoming season. The premiere episode of season 2 will air on Jan. 24, 2015.

A new pirate captain will be featured in "Black Sails" Season 2. The role of the ruthless pirate captain Ned Low will be played by Tadgh Murphy. Fans of the franchise can see the pirate with a scar on his right cheek and a discolored right eye in the trailer. He is seen killing the unarmed captain of a surrendered ship in the trailer.

Some of the other crew members may have more important roles this go around. The crimes committed by Flint were exposed by Dufresne in the previous season. He has risen from the role of an accountant to the quartermaster of the ship. Can he become a captain of a ship?



With the death of Gates and with two of the pirate ships brought down by the Spanish war ship, Flint has very little authority left. He is seen in the trailer saying he wants to become a captain of a ship again. The only reason the other crew members did not kill him in the previous season was because they found the Spanish treasure ship, the Urca.

It appears it may not be that easy for Flint to claim the treasures of the Urca in "Black Sails" Season 2. John Silver, played by Luke Arnold, is seen telling Flint he thinks the pirate captain wants to return to the island to claim the gold, which implies they may have left without the gold.

New alliances will be formed in "Black Sails" Season 2. Captain Charles Vane is seen making a deal with the new pirate Ned Low. Charles had taken control of the fort in the island and through that is able to control the island. Eleanor was not happy about the forced partnership and is waiting for a day when the fort gets retaken.

"Black Sails" Season 2 promises more action and drama. Anne Bonny is seen with Max naked on the bed, and Eleanor is seen confronting Flint. The trailer shows a ship burning at sea and lots of canons firing.

Leaked 'Star Wars Episode VII' Concept Art


star wars concept art

Star Wars: Episode VII production seem to reveal the visuals on some of J.J. Abrams’ super-secret concept art.

Take it with a heaping grain of salt, but Making Star Wars has gone live with descriptions of several different pieces of concept art. Not the art itself, mind you; just descriptions. Yeah, we know. But, if the concept art is legit, it seems to offer up a peek at a new baddie and some big action set pieces.

First up is a new villain, which could be Adam Driver’s character, or someone else. We don’t know, because he’s apparently wearing a mask. Here’s an excerpt from the art description:

The helmet looks like a samurai helmet. If you took Shredder from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and removed all the ornate additions from the helmet, you could have something similar. The back is kind of like Vader’s helmet but it is short, it just protects the back of the head, leaving the neck exposed. The face is covered. But you can see the eyes. This costume is Darth Vader if he were a ninja. Where the eye holes are, there is some light colored design. It has a good vibe about it. It reminds me of Shredder, a little bit of someone from Cobra in the old G.I. Joe and he has a black flowing cloak and red lightsaber which makes it look very cool.

Another piece apparently shows off a mysterious new alien, though the concept art apparently provides no context as to who the character might be or what planet and setting he might inhabit.

Barrett Pennsylvania Becomes a Real Life Haddonfield, Banning Halloween


eric frein causes halloween ban

Barrett Township, Pennsylvania  has banned Halloween this year. Well not the holiday, but trick-or-treating and its annual parade while hundreds of law enforcement officials search nearby woods for accused cop killer Eric Frein.

The Barrett Township said its annual Halloween parade and 5K Scarecrow Race are canceled indefinitely, and trick-or-treating is banned this year, as the dragnet for Frein is now in its fourth week. The suspect is believed to be hiding out in thick woods near the town.

"This parade is probably one of the biggest events that the town has every year," Ralph Megliola, chairman of the township's Board of Supervisors, told ABC News today. "Everyone looks forward to the parade. Myself and my family personally have been away and cut our vacation short to get home in time for the parade. Thousands of people line the streets."

Megliola said that this year would have been the town's 50th anniversary parade. It was scheduled for Oct. 26.

Many people worried that Frein could escape during the Halloween activities with the help of disguises or costumes, ABC affiliate WNEP reported.

If he's found before Halloween, Megliola said the town will reconsider its Halloween activities. For now, a "trunk-or-treat" will be held in the parking lot of a Catholic school in a nearby township.

On Wednesday state police said they found writings left by Frein that describe how he opened fire on a rural barracks and then made his escape.

Lt. Col. George Bivens read from the journal he says was written by Frein. He says Frein wrote that he took two shots, watched his victim fall "still and quiet," then shot a second trooper.

Investigators believe that excerpt refers to the late-night ambush that killed Cpl. Bryon Dickson and seriously wounded Trooper Alex Douglass.

Lt. Col. Bivens says this gives everyone a clear picture of the kind of person they are dealing with.

"I will tell you, after reading this cold-blooded and absolutely chilling account, that I can only describe Eric Frein's action as pure evil," he said.

Lt. Col. Bivens says Frein wrote that he tried to make a getaway in a Jeep, but ran it into a swamp and instead took off on foot, calling the botched getaway a "disaster."

Also Wednesday, police released two photos showing what Frein might look like with a mohawk - a hairstyle he was reportedly seen wearing - and with a beard.

Meantime, Action News has also obtained a copy of one of the search warrants executed on Frein's home.

Authorities recovered dozens of guns, high-powered rifles, ammunition, bomb making material and even equipment for making bullets.

ATF Special Agent Sam Rabadi says it's safe to say that the two pipe bombs recently recovered in the woods are not the only ones Frein allegedly constructed.

"All of these items lead us to believe that Frein has previously built improvised explosive bombs. We also believe that Frein possessed the materials necessary to build additional and perhaps more lethal explosive bombs capable of causing severe injury," said Rabadi.

Investigator say despite the fact that the search began nearly a month ago, they remain resolute in their mission to bring him to justice.

"The Pennsylvania State Police didn't pick this fight but it is ours to finish," said Lt. Col. Bivens.

The Walking Dead: The First 4 Minutes (Video)


the walking dead season 5

Chris Hardwick took to the NYCC main stage today to introduce producers Scott Gimple, Robert Kirkman, Greg Nicotero, and Gale Anne Hurd and cast members Andrew Lincoln, Steven Yeun, Lauren Cohan, Danai Gurira, Melissa McBride, Chad Coleman, Sonequa Martin-Green, and of course, Norman Reedus. The cast were hit with the usual questions, but some response really build the excitement for season 5.

Robert Kirkman on sticking to the source material:  "We will continue to adjust certain aspects of the story, but that this year the show would stick closer to the comic that it ever had previously. There are a lot of big moments from the comic book series that will pulled into the show this season."

Andrew Lincoln on Rick's new role: "Rick has grown tired of being a farmer, and he will really come into his own this season. I wish we hadn't killed Shane, because from Rick's perspective in this moment, Shane was onto something. I think you meet a man very much at the peak of his powers, I've loved playing him this season...he just kills so many!"



Kane Kills In 'See No Evil 2' (Review)

see no evil 2 movie review

At least the WWE got one thing right this year. With the huge disappointment of Leprechaun: Origins, I was really banking on this film to deliver. So-much-so that I almost went into the film with unreasonable expectations. Luckily I cleared my head and said "I'll take it as it is." I'm glad I did that because going in blank left me pretty pleased. See No Evil 2 may not win any awards, but it is still worth a watch and a solid installment in what can be a decent franchise with longevity.

See No Evil 2 picks up right where part 1 left off. All the bodies are being picked up and moved to the morgue, along with Jacob Goodnight (Kane). There we are introduce to are two morgue attendants, Amy (Danielle Harris) and Kaj-Erik Erickson (Seth). It is Amy's birthday and instead of going out she is stuck at work to help out with the huge work load coming in thanks to Jacob Goodnight. 

What really stands out in this film is the scoring. The music is perfect at setting the mood and helps build the tension. Next is the FX, a lot of practical work going on here. Very inventive kills done in camera are always an A+ in my book. Yes there is some CGI, but it's used very sparingly with the practical and dovetails nicely. Cinematography was good, mostly steady cam work, yet I feel it was missing a few of those standout shots. 

The cast delivers an acceptable performance. Kane stands out the most, literally, and shows he more than just a tall scary guy. It was a nice change of pace to see the lurking giant killer have some dialogue. Kane can carry a movie and this just proves it. The two big names besides Kane are Danielle Harris and Kathrine Isabelle. Kathrine kinda plays her character a bit over the top and nowhere near as believable as her many other roles. I don't know if she was phoning it in or that was how she was told to play it, but it's a bit distracting. However, it is still Katherine and that's always a positive. Danielle on the other hand does what she has be able to do since the age of 10 and that's deliver a believable, straight forward performance. She carries a huge chunk of the film and is one of the main reasons you become invested and care what happens. 

The overall story is a seamless transition from part one and really played as if it was planned out all along. Some things in the film are over the top and some of the character make stupid decisions, but for what it is, it delivers. You want to see people die in cool and creative ways this is the film to watch. Just don't go in over analyzing every detail and take it for what it is. After seeing this movie I want to check out more from the Soska Sisters.

Rating 7.0 / 10.0 Stars. Watch it on VOD October 17th and pick up the Blu-ray October 21st.

Iron Man 4 Confirmed on Ellen (Video)

iron man 4 confirmed

Robert Downey Jr. has quietly confirmed that there will be an Iron Man 4, thus proving once and for all that people in Hollywood actually enjoy making money for some reason. Downey was on Ellen chatting about The Judge, the new movie where he notably doesn’t play Iron Man or Steampunk Detective Iron Man, when Ellen asked him point blank whether there would be a fourth Iron Man movie. Downey said that Marvel is planning a whole lot of movies. “We’re in the middle of negotiation,” he explained. Ellen didn’t roll her eyes, but she kind of rolled her eyes. “Okay, yes,” he said.
